"What Garth Hattingh describes here starts with the physical satisfaction of clambering up a stretch of rock--but where climbing starts being different and so much stronger an experience is that element of risk, that you are staking your life on your judgement".

"There is the sense of discovery, both of your own limits and of places where noone has been before. There is the wonder of the beauty of the mountains and the strength of friendships, when your life is literally in your climbing partner's hands."
--Sir Chris Bonington, from the foreword of The Climber's Handbook.
